Just a few hours short of Christmas no less than six staff members from the Grafton School decided to try to restrain 13 year old Garrett Rush Halsey.
At the time of his death no legal consequence was given due to a local ruling in court.
However in 2008 almost 5 years later The Virginia Supreme Court overturned the ruling.
It was time for the family of young Mr. Halsey to gain some justice. If they did succeed we don't know but we hope that it would give them some peace.
A life should not end at age 13.
May he rest in peace.
